The appearance of these strange phrases suggests that they are Rebus puzzles, a popular type of riddle in which physical word properties can become literal parts of an answer. Some phrases in particular might jump out at you: "THTHEBOXINK" can be read as "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX" (that is, the word THINK placed outside the words THEBOX). "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX" is the slogan for Apple, suggesting a possible theme for all of the Rebus answers. The top centre puzzle brings to mind the famous Transformers tagline, "MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE", and this makes sense with the puzzle: "THE EYE" is 'more' (larger) than "MEETS". A bit of thinking and some research can reveal all eleven puzzles and their brand/franchise names:
INTEL INSIDE (Intel)
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX (Apple)
GET IN THE GAME (ATI/AMD Technologies)
The initials of the brand names in each row spell ITW, ALPY, and ALST. Notably, these initials are in alphabetical order, suggesting that their order is either irrelevant or has been intentionally obscured. The latter is true: the words can respectively be anagrammed to give WIT, PLAY, and LAST. Interpreting these three scrambled (or 'out') words as one final Rebus puzzle gives us the slogan OUTWIT, OUTPLAY, OUTLAST, which is the tagline for the reality television show SURVIVOR.
|The answer is: survivor|
